Internet search engine AskJeeves is seeking a new agency after
ending its relationship with Interactive PR (IPR). Prior to the amicable
split, IPR had worked with Ask Jeeves for a year-and-a-half, seeing the
company through major milestones, such as its July 1999 IPO. ’We’re
looking for an agency with a lot of creativity, an exceptional focus on
results and media relations expertise,’ said AskJeeves vice-president of
corporate communications Heather Staples.
